Yeah I liked it too, I just happened to end up having a short visit to Santa Cruz and Montarey for the first time, a few weeks after seeing it, now I want to see it again to check the steamer footage now that I have been there. I"m not sure if it's true that they paddled from SC to Monterey but that is no short distance.
I saw this last night off the web and was pleased with it. I'll watch any movie out there even though I have no expectations for most. This was pretty good on all fronts and I'd consider it one to own. Can't go wrong with Elisabeth Shue. 48 at the time of filming and she's still slamming.
not too bad at all. some great footage and the crappy plot didnt get too much in the way. but i do have to nominate the drug dealing "bad" rival surfer as one of the worst movie antagonists! bring back Laird as lance Burkhardt! now that was a surf villain
blue crush is the best surf flick ever. hahha. well it is for getting chubbys

The surfing scenes were pretty cool and especially the Mavericks shots. It had some of the typical teenage angst stuff, but his girlfriend and the Moms were hot.
